  • Help with 1982 ATC 70 carburetor rebuild PLEASE!

    I'm gonna try to be as brief as I can:

    My son is driving his '82 atc 70 a week or so ago. No problems for the last year. All of the sudden, gas starts dripping really fast out of the air box.

    I take the carb apart and there appears to be nothing wrong with the carb itself, but the needle seems to be sticking. I order a carb rebuild kit off Ebay from the same guy I got the aftermarket carb from a few years ago. Take the carb completely apart and clean it really well. Blow it all out with the air compressor nozzle to make sure of no dirt or anything. Put the new carb kit on it. Turn out the air screw two full turns and the idle screw two full turns just for starters. Put it back on along with the gas tank. Give it two or three pulls, and gas starts dripping back out of the air box again!

    I repeat the paragraph above about three or four times so far with the same results. With all the gas dripping out of this thing, I'm seriously ready to drag it out to the middle of the yard and light a match.

    Help PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!
